Product Overview

FULLY RESTORED - THE FIRST MOVIE EVER TRANSFERRED IN 8K ULTRADIGITAL HD! Shot in breathtaking 70mm in 24 countries on six continents, BARAKA is a transcendent global tour that explores the sights and sounds of the human condition like nothing you've ever seen or felt before. These are the wonders of a world without words, viewed through man and nature's own prisms of symmetry, savagery, harmony and chaos.

Editors Note
Note From Nepal to Kenya, from Australia to Brazil, people try to cope with the changes that have altered their landscape, crowding them together and speeding up daily life. The film shows us these alienated people, but also images of traditions--whirling dervishes and Tibetan monks--that offer different, peaceful ways of existence. Shot in 70mm in 24 countries, this awesome musical and visual montage in the tradition of KOYAANISQATSI expresses the global existence of nature and man in the broadest sensory terms.
New York Times "...An awesome cinematic world tour....BARAKA makes dazzling use of time-lapse photography..."| 09/24/1993 p.C14
Chicago Sun-Times "...It is a meditation on the planet....The movie has the power of a dream, from which we awaken, instead of a warning, to which we respond..." 11/12/1993 p.45
Empire 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] masterpiece. Dialogue free, it's brilliant in its simplicity; a series of slow-moving shots mesmerise the audience into a meditation on life on Earth." 12/01/2008 p.212
